Hello everyone, Just saying what's up. I guess if I'm posting in here I'll ask something and see what happens. Anyone think its possible to get an associates degree in mechanical engineering, then go straight into finding ways to get experience and work up from there and still be successful as an engineer? I don't want to put more time or money into school. I feel like I could use the 2 more years it would take to get the bachelor's degree to actually do something with my life. I'm not sure exactly what I want to do yet, I just want to continue expanding my knowledge and be ready for any opportunities that come my way. It would be cool to do research on something people don't know about yet or I'd like to just have my own business and design everything about it but any suggestions on places to start? I know it might be hard but I know I will put in as much work as it would take.
